Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

An embarrassed headwaiter provides the basis for this classical tale set in pre-war Russia. He conceals his lowly profession from his daughter who eventually discovers the truth. Soon after, the father discovers that his daughter has been having sex with a wealthy businessman in one of the restaurant's private salons in exchange for the money she needs to buy the restaurant.
